I like the large old stone churches around. I know they are only significant to certain people, but they grab my attention.

In addition to St. Paul's Episcopal, other Winston-Salem churches you might like include Centenary United Methodist, Augsburg Lutheran, St Leo's, etc. Of the brick churches, there's also a really beautiful AME church on East 4th or maybe 3rd, First Baptist Church, Home Moravian Church, Calvary Moravian, Green Street Church an incredible church near the School of the Arts (on Sprague St?) that's visible from US 52. In Greensboro, there's a really beautiful Presbyterian church on the edge of downtown, but I'm not sure of the name.
